The Wonder of Life

On a recent drive in rural Manitoba,I came across two Red-tailed Hawks that allowed me to get their picture. As is most often the case,I had time for only a couple of quick shots before they were out of range.

I liked they way they posed together in one tree.


Wings up and tail fanned out and away he goes.


These shore birds were much too far away for good pictures,but I do like the fanned tail and the wing pattern on the Killdeer.


The next two shots are poor quality,but the light was low and there was no time to adjust any settings on the camera. This doe sees me and will not wait around for long.


Tail goes up and away she bounds.


Closing Thought:
There's a wonder to life.
Pursue it. Hunt for it.
Your goal is not to live long;it is to live!

  2. The hawks are beautiful, but I love the bounding deer waving her warning flag. There's beauty even in photos that aren't technically perfect. No need to apologize for these.
